Hollywood is home to the rich and famous. As someone who has grown up watching the city on screen, there's something very magical about visiting Tinseltown in person. It has a vibe like nowhere else in the world - with a culture that is very much its own and sprinkled with a long history in film and television. After recently spending a week in Los Angeles and taking in the array of sights the city has to offer, I can now bring you my Top 5.

Before travelling somewhere, I always like to hit up friends for recommendations, so this was no different when travelling to Los Angeles. On a list filled with the obligatory trips to the Hollywood Sign and Walk of Fame, one eating spot made multiple appearances - Connie and Ted's

I've always been a fan of classic films, film making in general has always been magical to me. And nowhere does it's history lie more deeply engrained than Hollywood. I remember watching the That's Entertainment series as a child and being completely entranced by the snapshot into the archives and insights into what happened behind the camera.

Farmer's Daughter, Los Angeles

When visiting Los Angeles it's hard to decide which area to call home. Are you more Bellini's in Beverley Hills or happy hour in WeHo, the pavements in Downtown or the sand of Long Beach. And if you think area is difficult, the next step is choosing the right hotel. Los Angeles has something for everyone, and on my most recent trip, I discovered that there's no place quite like Farmer's Daughter.

The new designs see four subjects that might be seen as twee, transformed into a much more contemporary reincarnation - the same vision as five years ago. This time I opened up the brief to both country and city life, choosing two icons from each - a bird, deer, red telephone box and black cab.

On arrival at the East London destination of the Truman Brewery, I was met with the sweet smell of coffee, which practically guided me in from street level. The festival spreads across two floors and multiple rooms, with pumping beats from live DJs and the whizzing sounds of coffee theatrics in progress.

First thing I have to say, is that the interior and branding is really wonderfully executed, with a very cool vibe, and going a different direction than many of the bubble tea stores. The light grey walls are accented by lovely shades of green, blue, pink and yellow.

I've sometimes toyed with the idea of getting a tattoo, but there's something about the permanency and probably the pain that stops me entering through those parlour doors. However, I recently came across Oliver Sweeney offering the option of getting a tattoo on their shoes, and this instantly seemed like a much more painless option.

The sun has arrived, and a new light is cast into our homes, calling for a fresh look at our interiors. Similar to fashion, it's unlikely that many of us can get a whole new wardrobe each season, so it is all about ways of updating our spaces with small accessories - and perhaps a few big splurges along the way!

This was a very interesting project for me to work on, and a real departure from many of the interiors I have done in the past. The final result stands out in the Wimbledon landscape and lives up to my vision of a traditional meets futuristic dining experience.

Italian cooking is my favourite type of food, pizza and pasta, but tiramisu is not something that normally sends me salivating over the dessert menu.

I would say that I'm one of those people who enjoys cooking, but has never really found the knack of following recipes. Perhaps it's the designer in me, but when I'm left alone in the kitchen, I always have the urge to get creative and result in a recipe far from the picturesque concoction in a recipe book.

Now that Jonathan Adler has settled into the homes of Britain, I for one, am very grateful for the humor and boldness he has brought with him. Long may his free spirited design ethos reign over our interiors, and long may we love our homes as our own.

I'm a Candy Kitten Too!

Something clear when speaking to him, was that this is a brand sweetened with Jamie Laing. From his humour, fun and maybe one or two of his trademark phrases, Candy Kittens is full of life and certainly has plenty more in it. For one week only they have popped up at 261 Kings Road, so pop in and you might even meet the main-man himself.
